Shorts, Tights & Suits
Équipe 2 Aero bib shorts
Our headline Équipe shorts have evolved for 2023
Our Équipe shorts have proved to be fantastic for both comfort and durability since their launch in 2018. For the new evolution of the bib shorts; we have retained the finest Italian lycra and introduced a one piece brace / bib and new ProSL Dry chamois to maximise the comfort on the body.
Construction stays with Carvico’s Aero fabric on the ergonomic side panels, designed specifically to reduce drag. This Lycra is also four way stretch to mirror the pedalling motion and eliminate the stress point at the hip. Our partner factory worked with us to locate ideal material placement to optimise comfort, stitching the front and back panels in very light compression for second-skin feel.
Our ProDry SL is a high performance chamois, ideal for long hours in the saddle. When you ride all day the chamois function is to reduce friction, remove moisture and protect from vibration. This pad is constructed 4-layer, dual-density memory foam construction breathability. Perfect fit for all shapes because it adheres better to the body allowing freedom of movement. The highest density support is located in the ischium (sit bones) area and greatly reduces friction and vibration when the pad is under stress. The entire pad is anti-bacterially treated during final assembly and is super soft.
The leg grippers are soft and secure silicone that subtly match our Team jersey range and your pedalling motion. 100% flat stitched to avoid irritation.
Your bike time just got better.

5ft 11 6kg medium is a perfect fit. The chamois has been really comfy up to 83 mile rides so far the fabrics are excellent and the silicone thigh grippers are a compressive but not restrictive fit. As ever galibier have delivered a top grade pair of shorts at a fraction of the price of the big brands. Galibier are always my go to brand… these shorts have cemented that status!
5’10”, 68kg and medium fits unbelievably well. Riding since early 90s, and these are as good as anything I’ve worn. No gathering or chafing; pad is perfect and the cut is ideal. Premium in every dept and worth two or three times the price. My references are le Col,Castelli, agu, assos, Madison, santini, sportful, lusso. Courteous and quick customer service too. Thanks Galibier, found my brand.

I’ve been out with these 4 times now so it’s time for a review. The longest ride was 5 hours and I only felt any mild discomfort after 3 hours, which was fine as I needed a break anyway.
Nice firm pad, but very comfortable. The material throughout is very high quality, and is very breatheable with hardly any sweating.
I’m a shade under 6 foot tall, around 12 stone, 34 inch waist, and the large is a perfect fit, and just the right length.
Also, and very important, the front waist is just low and stretchy enough to facilitate a ‘comfort break’.
Galibier even included a free high quality pair of socks, also a perfect fit.

I don’t often spend the time reviewing products online, but these totally deserve it! I have always used Castelli and have been rather happy with them, unless it is more that 4hr ride – when I would always have some pain and rash after. Not with these ones though! Recently did 7 and 6 hour rides and my bum felt like I was sitting on the sofa all day! Absolutely brilliant bibs. And for the price – steal! 10/10

Great bib shorts, just completed 300km spin and faultless. No issues and pad is great, not soreness. Will be getting another one.

Ok, so let’s start by saying that all my bibs and cycling gear are Galibier so well done guys for great products. I started with the original Classique bibs, then moved to the Energie Elite II, tried the Pro 6 Endurance as well and thought I would try these Equipe Aero. I have to say I think these are probably the best out of the lot of them. Whilst the others are all very good, these have that extra bit of comfort. Initially you look at the chamois and think it is not as good or thick as the others but somehow it seems to offer more comfort on the long rides. I have done about 500 km in them now and the fabric feels great too. Leg length is spot on and the general fit seems better as well. I am 170cm and 68 kg, medium fits like a glove however I think if I was 70kg it would probably be too tight.
Worth paying that bit more in my opinion, I am just about to purchase another pair.

I had managed to pick up a pair of Assos shorts when a LBS closed down and was curious how the Galibier Equipe Aeros would compare. First impressions after 115km this morning was extremely well. They were every bit as comfortable, look great and cost little more than half the price of the half-priced Assos pair. The free gift was, as always, appreciated as was the fact that the Euro price worked out less than that advertised on the website due to a favourable PayPal exchange rate.
The medium size was a perfect fit for my 67kg, 175cm tall and 80cm waist.

Huge disappointment with the pad here, and it’s a shame to hear that it’s the pad that’s going to be used in most Galibier shorts going forwards. Maybe it’s just me. It feels very thin, gives almost zero padding and leaves me in significant discomfort on any rides longer than 40km. My previous shorts (the now-discontinued Classique) were fantastic, good for 150km+.
Everything else about the shorts is great – good quality material, good fit. Just a shame they don’t also come in the black/white fade that’s on the matching jersey.
Also very disappointed with Galibier’s customer service response on this. I’m a loyal customer and kitted out head-to-toe (literally!) with their kit, and this will be the last pair of bibs I buy from here until they can engage properly with customer feedback.

Got my first pair recently. So impressed, I’ve just ordered a second pair

I’m 182cm/5’11” tall, 83cm/32.5″ inside leg, 87cm/34″ waist.
The Large fits like a glove.
Literally the most comfortable garment I’ve ever worn. Used every day for the last 10 days with a few overnight washes and I am beyond satisfied. The pad is way ahead of anything I’ve sat on before.

1300 miles in split between 2 pairs, the shorts are perfect near mint only wear is the pad itself has softened and have moved or worn at the front. shame I cannot add a pic with clearer view. shame as an important area for me.
I’ve been using a full carbon saddle with these so they clearly are a solid bib short. always enjoy riding with Galibier kit 🙂

Recently kitted myself out with all Galibier from a recommendation from
a friend. Have to say it was the best advice i received and followed through. The padding on the shorts felt like i could of cycled forever! Nice little gesture of a few words of encouragement left from Myles in my order with a free gift! Thanks Galibier you made my first experience of purchasing a very good memorable one and i will 100% be back!

Was recommended Galibier shorts by a friend and bought these bib shorts, have used them 5 times now and have found the quality and fit (followed the size guide) of utmost quality.

After trawling the Internet for a new pair of bibs for about 2 weeks I finally came across the Equipe Aroes, and after reading all the stellar reviews and taking into account these things are only £73 I bit the bullet and made my first order with Galiber, I was deliberating large or medium but decided to go with the size guide (went for the medium I’m 5’7, 31′ waist 30′ inseam) received them the next day! Along with a jersey, socks and they threw in a free cap (thanks for that!) tried the whole kit on, and everything fitted perfectly. Been on a few rides out now and I’ve got absolutely no complaints! The pad is spot on, comfy, not restrictive at all. Can’t wait to pick for a few more Galiber products!

My 4th pair of Galibier bib shorts, the equippe shorts but ooze quality straight out of the bag, perfect in every way especially on those long sunny, summer morning rides.
I’m 5’8″, 78kg 32″waist and the large fits better than a glove.

Superb shorts, I have worn them a few times since purchase and I am delighted with the quality. Excellent customer service also.

WouLd highly recommend the aero bib shorts, very comfortable good fit and high quality – I am very impressed.
Great value plus delighted with the pair of socks included with the shorts.

Unfortunately I had to return the Equipe Aero bib shorts, as the legs are much too wide at the base for my thigh width and so do not grip, but leave a considerable gap. Big shame as I think otherwise they would fit very well and the chamois looks excellent. I have had this issue with other manufacturers shorts lately as the current fashion seems to be for shorts to have longer leg lengths, and I have seem to have fairly skinny thighs. I wore the Galibier Mistral bib tights right through last winter and they were the best I ever had, so disappointed that these just don’t fit my physique. As ever, quality looks excellent.

My first Galibier purchase & I’m not disappointed. Fantastic product, well packaged (loved the socks), arrived quickly – what’s not to like. I’m looking at a SS Jersey to match now…..oh & some glasses 🙂

I didn’t know cycling could be this comfortable, what have I been doing all these years! Style and substance in spades. Great customer service and one happy customer. Thanks Galibier,

These bib shorts are by far the best I’ve ever used.The quality is as good as any other brands I’ve tried except that these are half the price.The fit is great and the pad is sublime,so comfortable it’s untrue.
All in all,really good value for money and can genuinely change your riding experience for the better.Superb

Amongst all my other Galibier items these are my 2nd pr of shorts. Very comfortable pad. Excellent as usual. I’m 60ks and medium is perfect for me. Thanks for the socks.
Russell (verified owner) –
Fantastic spoke to Myles about fit being 6ft 2″ and 79kg previously bought Large but sized UP and these are just PERFECT. Had multiple rides and as like previous shorts they are just great.
Always great service from Galibier (2 days door to door) #RideSolo
SO good I bought another pair and might be back for more soon 🙂

I just got my second pair of these bib shorts for when my first pair are in the wash. They are such good quality that I can’t tell the them apart and my first pair are well over a year old and seen plenty of miles.
Highly recommend and the most comfortable I ever wore. Top notch.

My second pair of Galibier shorts. These are of excellent quality. I am 172cms tall and 84 waist and I chose the large which are a very comfortable fit. I used them today on a very cold winter’s day with the sun shining and I wore merino legwarmers. All in all very comfortable over my first 3 hour tryout ride. Excellent value also. Nothing cheap about these. Good materials properly sewn, and attractive to look at.

I have had these for 6 weeks which included a 1200km week in the Alps. I was alternating these with my club shorts and couldn’t wait for these to dry. Really great fit, whatever you people at Galibier do, keep doing it!

4 pairs of Galibier bibs now, apart from the restrictive bib on classique’s all have been flawless and superb value. Couldn’t tell much difference in comfort from Pro5 and Peletons, both good but these are better. Good intro deal for existing customers but even at full price they are well worth it. Better fit in medium for my 30w and 5’10h, pad is very good and top notch construction. These are equal to my top end Vermarc PPR for long distance rides… I’ll be sure to use for the big audax events. If looking for shorts for 7 hour plus rides, these are it!

New slick packaging carried these brilliant bibshorts to me and what a garment they are. Worn twice now and will be my new go to shorts I feel. With 6 other models of Galibier bibshorts of similar quality, they just can’t be beaten for comfort, quality and value.
This chamois is a dream to wear and the leg grippers are right on the mark. Nice colour scheme with the usual simple yet stylish look. Top marks again.

These arrived yesterday. Was a risk with untested kit- but did Ride London today, including riding to the start in Olympic park and home again, a total of 9 hours and ten minutes in the saddle. You did it again Galibier, thanks.

My second spin today in the Equipe shorts was 135km today. First long spin and really pleased. I am 34″ waist and went for the XL. Would recommend sizing up as they are similar fit to my Castelli shorts. 9/10 and amazing value.
